Next week doesn't look better. In fact, a little worse: Tuesday, another inreach training at my own church; Wednesday, confirmation, Thursday, my book club (I have, alas, not finished the book, Abide with Me, by Elizabeth Strout, yet), Friday, wedding rehearsal (at an outdoor location I still don't have a map for), Saturday, Health Care meeting, Wedding (at an outdoor location I still don't have a map for), Sunday (deep breath) Young Couples' Dinner. Oh, and did I mention I'm preaching next week? No?
But I'm not preaching this week. So tomorrow night and Saturday Husband and I are going to take a little get away to a secret location. I don't know for sure where it is, but I think it looks like this:
My dream: relaxing time reading and writing (maybe even some bad poetry! I haven't done that in years), and active time hiking with Scout, if the weather turns nice. And time to get away from the pressure and desire to succeed at all of the things I am doing, and remember that I am a person and a child of God.
My hope: that I will return renewed.
I believe in this: do you?
